Red Sox Owner John Henry Launches Solo Bid to Buy the Boston Globe
Posted: 8/1/2013 | By: Beth Healy | Boston.com
Red Sox owner John Henry has decided to make a bid to buy the Boston Globe on his own, after his group dropped out of the process more than a week ago, according to a person with direct knowledge of the matter.
Henry previously submitted a bid for the Globe through New England Sports Network, which is 80 percent owned by his Fenway Sports Group. The other 20 percent is controlled by Boston Bruins owner Jeremy Jacobs. But that group recently dropped out, people close to the highly secretive bidding process said.
